3.0 Specific Project Goals:

accomplish the general purpose of the project.
4.0 Value of the Project:
In this section, the student should discuss how the project under consideration will add

importance of the project in the first place.
5.0 Plan of Action (the stages of the project):
This section should contain a timeline that reflects the major categories of activity the
student expects to manage during the project; e.g., research, preparation of proposal,
meetings with preceptor/mentor, other meetings, preparation of final report, etc. A predicted number of hours to be spent in each category of work should be shown. Recall that a minimum of 135 hours of work/input is needed to fulfill the course’s time requirement. No maximum number of hours is specified.
This section should describe how you will document the processes associated with the
project (e.g., journal entries, copies of meeting minutes, anecdotal comments, etc.). You will not be required to turn in this information. However, the references may be very
useful when preparing the Final Practicum Report, e.g., they can be used in the paper’s References section.
